Description

1868 Braided Hair Ten Cent in Nickel
Judd-647, PR65

1868 10C Ten Cents, Judd-647, Pollock-720, R.6, PR65 NGC. CAC.
Design.
The obverse features the almost identical design used on large cents from 1843 to 1857. The reverse is similar to the large cent design except the wreath is smaller and open, and TEN CENTS appears in its center. Struck in nickel with a plain edge.

Commentary. A popular variety with large cent collectors, borrowing the obverse design from large cents from previous decades. The same obverse was used for one cent and ten cents patterns in 1868, struck in copper and in nickel. About two dozen of these nickel patterns are known, and that is the exact number of pieces that NGC and PCGS have certified.

Physical Description. Light gray surfaces exhibit hints of golden-brown toning on this pleasing Gem proof. Both sides show a blunt strike on the top hair strands of the obverse and the upper leaves of the reverse. Dark toning flecks attest to the originality of this piece.
From The Eric P. Newman Collection. (PCGS# 60865)
